Our Sweet Girl is 1

>> June 5, 2008

I can't believe she's 1.
She's grown so much and already trying out independence.
She makes us laugh every day.
She knows what she wants, except when she's fighting sleep - and then she knows what she doesn't want.
This morning she got in the pantry, got out the Costco bin of animal crackers (which is 1/2 of her size) and carried it to Bruce. She knows where the food is and tries to help herself whenever possible.

This month she perfected the art of saying no, no, no while wagging her finger.
Actually, she has learned quite a bit about communication this month.
And she says thank you, usually before she gets what she wants as a means to tell you what she wants, but it is very cute nonetheless.

She loves to sing and dance.
Itsy, Bitsy, Spider is her new song, and we do it A LOT.

She LOVES to be outdoors. If she sees any door open she drops everything and makes a run for it.
And she is definitely going to be our drama queen. She has already perfected throwing herself on the floor while crying when things don't go her way. (We're working on that one.)

We love you Molly Ruth Kane. You bring such joy to our lives and we are so grateful God chose us to be your family.

For those of you who have been waiting very patiently, here are a few pictures from her party...

Here are some of the fun things we did to make it special...

Instead of treat bags for each guest, we made special rice crispy treats

Bruce made these paper flowers and, of course, this arrangement

After the festivities were over, our sweetie was tired. And although she couldn't keep her eyes open, she was determined to finish eating her apple.

Happy Birthday sweet girl!

I love those pictures of Bruce with Molly. I think that the daddy-daughter relationship is so special, and I love picture's that capture that relationship.
Looks like you guys had a blast at her party. She looks so sweet sleep-eating that apple.
